The view east makes you want to explore.
Short Summary created by jackill,  11 Jun 2011
Park in the large car park at the Connor pass.
Cross the main road and head due east uphill following a distinct track for 200 meters, leave this track as it swing sharply south and continue uphill and east, skirting cliffs to your left side.
These are steep cliffs, so keep some distance from them.
You will come to a small semicircle of stones at about 620 mtrs elevation , pick up a low stone wall and follow it to the unmarked summit of Slievenea about 400 meters to the east.
From there and easy grassy slope drops down before the final climb to Slievanea NE Top
with a small pile of stones. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/155/comment/4915/

From Coumanares summit looking across the high valley towards the Reeks.
Below is Loch Barrot in the foreground with Loch Meain and An Loch Dubh behind.
The broad shoulder of Gowlane sweeps down from the left toward Bearna na Gaoithe (yes it is windy).
Just left of centre is Banoge North reached by a steep climb up from the gap and then the long easy ridge over to Knockmulanane.The Iveragh Mountains are visible in the haze across the bay.
The summit of Coumanare is marked by a small cairn of stones. The sense of isolation you feel in the valley of the Coumanare lochs really is splendid - apart from a few old tracks and sheep folds it has largely escaped mans influence. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/155/comment/1713/

I've just returned from a week on the gorgeous Dingle Peninsula, staying in a house at the bottom of the Conor Pass, with the north face of Slievanea NE top beckoning. If you want a more challenging way up to start a walk in these Cnetral Dingle mountains you could try this. I started this walk from our farmhouse, crossing the road by the large sign you'll see as you wind uphill. The gate by the sign (518084 A)leads up not too boggy ground to a constant uphill pull south up the face, following a ruined wall for some of the way. It's steep but steady and will probably take around 45 minutes to get you to the summit, which seemed to stay far clearer of clouds than the nearby Brandon group; I didn't see the top of Brandon itself once in 8 days. Great vieweast and south east fro there, but I enjoyed the views behind as I climbed - the lovely vista of brandon Bay surrounded by mountains. It's all easy walking once you're up on the tops. I trotted over to Slievanea and got picked up from the car park at the top of the Conor Pass but would have loved to head east to easily pick off the other summits - a walk for the future.

The approach to the NE Top is along a broad, grassy shoulder. Very soon the view to the NE (on right) beings to open up. The Coumanare Lakes are visible on the plateau below, but what really draws the attention forward is the flight of serried tops that rims the NW-facing corries. Slievenalecka, Slievenagower, Beenbo (Gob an Iolair), Binn an Tuair, and even An Com Ban are all visible from here. And then, slightly to the right, the dominating triangle of Beenoskee. In this remote upland area, if you like solitude, you are well served! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/155/comment/2945/
